adore children. I love the fact that our
children are part of both of us, it's one
of the most amazing things ever.
you do have kids you do grow up. People
did say that to me. I have just started
realising it now it changes the world -
way I and my family have been treated is
an absolute disgrace. At the end of the
day, I'm a nice person and loving husband
and father. I've been called a bad father,
I've been called a bad husband and my wife
has been called a bad mother. Things always
hurt that are said about my family, and
for people to call my wife a bad mother
is unbelievable. I'm a strong person, I'm
a strong family man, I'm a strong husband
and a strong father.
the past few months, I have become accustomed
to reading more and more ludicrous stories
about my private life. The simple truth
is that I am very happily married, have
a wonderful wife and two very special kids.
There is nothing that any third party can
do to change these facts.
cannot remember a moment in my life
when I have not felt the love
of my family.
We were a family that would have killed
for each other - and we still are. My parents
adored each other, and in my childhood
there was barely a cross word between them.
you are getting ready to become a mom,
being in love
with someone just isn't enough. You need
about whether he would be a good
and raise your children
with similar beliefs.
I was a little kid, I used to really embarrass
I wouldn't do it on purpose, but they'd
have guests over from overseas. I'd be sitting
there listening to this strange way of speaking.
We had this Canadian guy who used to goldmine
in Alaska, and every now and then, he'd
go down to Australia and thaw out. I just
started doing his voice, and it must have
annoyed the hell out of people.
They'd start talking and I'd talk back to
them in their voice. They could obviously
hear that I was doing them. "I don't
you watch too much TV."
would look at the 28-year-old guy
playing the war veteran in a film
and tell my parents,
"I don't know why the director
doesn't see me in that role. I might be
a little short, but I can do it.".
thing with a child is that you love
them, you protect them and you help
them to grow and find out who they are.
And as a parent,
it's my responsibility
to help them to become independent and get
all the knowledge
and a broad view of the world
I know that Nic
absolutely agrees with that. And that's
what's important: being there.
like my name. My parents
were in the Uffizzi Gallery looking at a
da Vinci when my mom
felt me kick. That's how I got my name.
My parents were real hippies.
totally normal. I think it's obnoxious when
people demand limos or bodyguards. I eat
at McDonald's or Taco Bell. My parents always
taught us to be humble. We're not spoiled.
love making my own money and not having
to get anything from my parents. It's a
fun job, and I love it. It's nice to make
your own living and do your own thing.
very interested in the commitment
aspect of marriage
and that is a very romantic
thing. Some girls
grow up with that burning desire
just to have that day. I don't know if I'm
one of those girls, or if I've been affected

I am from the Dinka tribe, my parents
didnt raise us as the Dinka tribe.
They raised us as the Wek family, in the
way they believed
should grow up. So when you leave, the first
thing you think
is the ones you left behind. Its natural
